Procedure techniques & scars
Dr. Mok uses the most advanced surgical techniques to bring quality results to his patients. During surgery, an incision is typically made under the chin. This allows for easy access to the underlying tissues of the neck, as well as an incision that can be easily hidden post-surgery. Pockets of excess fat will be removed, and the soft tissue and muscles of the neck are then pulled tightly to create a more youthful structure. Once this has been performed, Dr. Mok will smoothly re-drape the remaining skin and excise any extra that is no longer wanted. Once healing has occurred, a virtually invisible scar line will be hidden in the new contours of the neck and chin. When combined with other procedures such as a facelift, incisions may be hidden along the hairline and/or behind the ear.
